These cinnamon bars are packed with nuts, dates and lots of protein! I make these bars every time I am travelling as they are perfect for breakfast or for snacks when you are having a hard time finding gluten free and vegan food while being away from home.  Recipe comes from : http://whatsfordinner-momwhatsfordinner.blogspot.ca/2013/05/raw-vegan-cinnamon-roll-larabars.html

Once prepared, I wrap the bars in parchment paper and place in the freezer. Once defrosted they are safe to keep in your luggage or even your purse as they don’t crumble or change shape. This simple recipe takes about ten minutes to make and the results are delicious and nutritious!
